De La Hoya: Roman Gonzalez's Style is Almost Perfect

like Roman General and subsequent Emporer Julius Cesar succinctly wrote: "I came, I saw, I conquered!" So now Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (43-0, 37KOs) who's won all his battles and titles in three different weight divsions, is determined to preserve and conserve his WBC flyweight crown.

Gonzalez defends his world title against former champion Brian Viloria (36-4, 22KOs) on Saturday night as part of the Gennady Golovkin vs. David Lemiuex HBO Pay-Per-View bout from New York's Madison Square Garden.
Roman's strategy of ring warfare has caught the attention of another former king of the ring, former five division world champion and Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya.

Oscar, who several times proclaimed that Alexis Arguello was also his idol, praises the compatriot of "The Thin Man," predicting Roman will knock out Viloria before the seventh round.
“He has earned his spot as number one pound for pound. Roman's style is almost perfect.  Roman“Chocolatito” Gonzales is a great fighter, who makes me remember my idol Alexis Arguello. Roman has an elegant style, yet he's a humble working man,  fighting and struggling not only for his country but also to become  a giant of the ring," De La Hoya said.

He does have an elegant style. That's a good way to describe it. Elegant destruction just like Alexis Arguello.

Don't agree with Oscar much but I agree with him here! Great mix of Skills, Power and a Pressure/Come Forward Style. Love Watching His Style! Truly is almost a "Flawless" Style!
